Get set for a springtime weekend classic.
Canadian high pressure is taking hold over Minnesota this weekend. That means lots of sun, cool mornings and sunny pleasant afternoons.
NOAA surface map loop shows cool quiet high pressure in control of Upper Midwest weather this weekend.
No matter what you’re outdoor plans are this weekend, the weather should agree. Here’s the rundown.
Saturday: Plenty of sun, a cool start and a milder finish. Highs will be in the mid 60s pretty much statewide with 50s along Lake Superior. Winds will be northwest at between 10 and 15 mph. Lows Saturday night will be in the 30s south and 20s north.
Sunday: More sun, less wind and milder. Highs should be in to 60s to near 70. Light winds will make the day feel warmer than Saturday.
Temperatures are still running about 5 to 10 degrees above average for this weekend. The long string of warmer than average weather that began in March is adding up to some records. This is the warmest first half of spring on record for Duluth, and for other areas of the Upper Midwest.
